Students may choose to complete concurrent majors in HDFS and CEAED (PK-4). This program was created by the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and the College of Education to provide students with an opportunity to explore the wide range of career options available to HDFS graduates while also considering whether to become a certified teacher of elementary education.

If you have been thinking of a career working with children between the ages of 0 – 10, either in the Human Services field (Counselor, Social Worker, etc.) or as a teacher in daycare, community preschool, or preschool through grade 4 in the public schools, then this opportunity may be for you. This program is ideally suited for students entering their first year at Penn State. Students may enter this program either through the HDFS program or the CEAED major (PK-4) option.
